The Guidance  (1.1)

This year’s Winter Build will be an exciting one. We have many new members. Some are former members that have returned and others are from other areas clubs. Here are the guidelines for this year’s Winter Build:


  1. The work must be performed by you.
  2. Fiberglass fuselages are acceptable
  3. The model can be constructed from sheet foam, built-up balsa, composites or a monocoque structure to a resin impregnated material such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, Kevlar, or Wood.
  4. The model must be a fixed wing or variable geometry wing aircraft utilizing any acceptable propulsion that Little Field can support (e.g., Nitro, Gas, Electric or EDF). Gas turbines are not authorized. If the aircraft has no propulsion at all, a high start, tow plane or winch system will be allowed to launch the aircraft.
  5. Balsa-covered foam cored wings are permissible.
  6. Aircraft must remain under the 55 pounds limit.
  7. At least 20 pictures must be shared with the club via the website during the construction and no later than March 23, 2023.
    Email pictures to:
  8. The club will host a Maiden Day at Little Field on March 25, 2023.
  9. The Aircraft cannot be flown prior to the Maiden Day. Pilots are encouraged to break in their engines prior to the event.
  10. Prior to the maiden flight, the aircraft will be inspected by at least one other member to ensure the aircraft is safe and ready for the flight. Static judging of all entries will be conducted by the judges.
  11. Following the static judging, the entries will perform their maiden flight. A "successful" flight is one where the aircraft is able to make a second flight following the maiden without repair. The results will constitute 50% of the total points possible.
  12. The other 50% of the points awarded will be judged independently by three different judges, assigned by the president, and spread equally from the following five areas:
      (a) Construction Skill    (d) Attention to scale and/or originality
      (b) Finishing                (e) Radio Install
      (c) Airworthiness
  13. The builder can hire a mercenary pilot for the maiden flight if nerves or lack of skill may result in the builder being awarded the crash trophy for the year.


The winner will receive the choice of either his/her dues in the KARCS or the AMA covered by the Club. Second place will get whatever the winner did not want.

The President reserves the right to change, modify or completely rewrite these rules in order to ensure the most participation and fun possible by the most members possible. Any ties or "issues" will be resolved by a council comprised of the President, the Vice President and the Secretary/Treasurer.

Questions & entry applications should be sent to the vice-president at:
